For my this is a nice ship and also I can say that this is very good building and enginering product of HDW Kiel as I know. Sister ship is MSC Mia Summer.Best regards for photo maker...

They don't get an award for the best looking one. But they are very different to the ones you usualy see.

After seeing them nearly every week, you get very used to them.

Thanks Ken and Cornelia.

Oops was me, who sait it's ugly :-) That's just what I thought when I saw this type of ship the first time. Perhaps one can get used to them after seeing them a second or more time. Or is just that I do like the classic look with deckouse midships and square angles.

Hi Marie-Anne,

I guess I don't agree that she is the ugliest container ship, there are many worse than her, she has a certain character to her, agreed she is different but certainly not ugly !!!

Great shot anyway.

Thanks alot for the tip, it goes right to the "possible ideas for the future" - folder :-)
Marie-Anne on Aug 05, 2007 17:02 (10 years ago)
In Antwerp it is possible by train.
And from the sation you can take a walk to the harbour tour terminal.
Fantastic tours you can make from there for about 3 hours and see a lot of ships. :-P

Or in that case, I am going as far as the railroad-tracks take me :-o Not having a car, I usually go where the trains go, and where good places for taking photos are accessible by public transport. Here, Hamburg win's the 1st price :-D

You never know where the seas will bring you. So maybe one day you get to check them out in Antwerp your self.
These ships are very regular visitors overhere.

Thanks for the tip, I am going to check out for "Norasia" and find more of these strange creations, and I have never been to Antwerp, but often to Amsterdam and Hamburg :-D
Marie-Anne on Aug 05, 2007 16:17 (10 years ago)
Hi Cornelia,

In ANtwerp we call these ships "Norasia" ships.
As far as we know that was the company who ordered them. But i think they are all sold now to a lot of different companies.
I'm glad you like the photo. :-P

I need to check out the other ships of this kind, definitely winners of the "ugliest containreship award" :-D :-D :-D Does that series have a name, or which company has ordered them ? Yes, indeed a differet look, no matter in which color these are painted, they will always be recognized. They do remind me sort in the old "Townsend-Thoresen" ferries, distinctive, but weird look, but about your photo, you managed to make a good photo of the ship !
Greetings, Cornelia
Marie-Anne on Aug 05, 2007 14:01 (10 years ago)
Well Cornelia, it certanly is something different.
There has been a whloe of ships like this.
Tocay i seen the MSC Matia Summer. Still in pretty blue color.

Thanks for your opinion. :-P

To be honest, what the hell is this ?? This is by far the ugliest containership I have EVER seen, and of course, containerships are never beauties but this is.. hideous :-D Or is there any certain reason why they have designed it that way ? I've never seen something like that before.. 8-)
